It took a few months of wrangling but acclaimed rap crew Wu-Tang Clan have finally confirmed their Australia tour details. Ghostface Killah called into triple j to reassure sceptical fans that the tour is still going ahead.
“We coming over there to mash out and we’re going to be over there definitely”, the emcee said. “We got love for Australia and Australia has love for us. We wish we could come over there more often but we just need the right promoters to call us and stuff like that.”
At the time Ghostface wasn’t exactly sure who had signed off to head on tour but we can now confirm that the entourage will include Ghostface Killah, Method Man, Raekwon, Inspectah Deck, Gza, U-God, Masta Killa, DJ Allah Mathematics, DJ Street Life and the son of the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Young Dirty. RZA, last heard working on a Kung Fu movie with Russell Crowe, is “unavailable”.
